Canon RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM Lens

Perfect all-purpose lens for all types of photography ventures, the RF 24-70mm f/2.8 L IS USM Lens is designed for the Canon's EOS R full-frame mirrorless camera system. This versatile lens combines a bright f/2.8 maximum aperture with a standard focal length zoom range. The featured Nano USM technology enhances video performance, especially when tracking moving subjects, by achieving accurate and silent AF. Whether shooting handheld or in poorly-lit situations, this lens ensures that pictures stay sharp and steady with up to five stops of shake correction. Engineered to cover a wide range of shooting scenarios, the RF 24-70mm f/2.8 L IS USM has a minimum focusing distance of 0.69 ft./0.21m (wide) and 1.25 ft./0.38m (telephoto). This Canon RF 24-70mm also features a dust- and weather-resistant construction with a fluorine coating to protect the front and rear elements.

High Quality Images

The large-diameter RF mount helps capture detailed images in various lighting situations. Even in low-light areas, this lens has the capabilities to produce sharp images at various focal lengths. Combined with the short back focus design, it enhances the optical performance of the lens.

Bright f/2.8 Aperture

Bright f/2.8 constant maximum aperture ensures sharp and stunning images. With 21 elements in 15 groups and a 9-blade aperture system, it maintains consistent illumination throughout the zoom range to deliver stunning images with gorgeous background blur.

Nano USM Technology

Engineered to deliver smooth, high-speed, accurate, and silent AF, the RF 24-70mm f/2.8 L IS USM lens is equipped with Canon’s Nano USM system. This diminutive chip-shaped ultrasonic motor utilizes both an STM mechanism and a ring type USM to achieve near-silent operation during still image AF and smooth movie AF.

Optical Image Stabilizer

The RF 24-70mm f/2.8 L IS USM lens is designed to work in combination with an Canon EOS R series camera, with both the camera and the lens sharing data to minimize camera-shake blur by five stops.

Focusing Distance

With just the turn of a zoom ring, this lens offers amazing versatility and is capable of capturing detailed and sharp images from nearly any distance. It can cover a minimum focusing distance at 0.69 ft./0.21m (wide), 1.25 ft./0.38m (telephoto), and a maximum magnification of approx. 0.30x.

Control Ring for Direct Setting Changes

The independent Control Ring that is located towards the front of the lens can be used to adjust a variety of exposure settings during still and video shooting. You can adjust a variety of settings such as shutter speed, lens aperture, exposure compensation and more.

High-Speed Communication with the Camera

The featured 12 pin communication system is designed to quickly process data. To simplify complex operations, it ensures the acceleration of Image Stabilization, AF, the Digital Lens Optimizer, and more.

Lens Information Display

Information regarding RF 24-70mm f/2.8 L IS USM lens’s focal length can be displayed right in the viewfinder of an EOS R series camera.

Three UD (Ultra-Low Dispersion) Elements

For greater clarity and color accuracy, the featured three UD (Ultra-Low Dispersion) elements minimize chromatic aberration and color fringing.

Three Aspherical Elements

To achieve accurate rendering and improved sharpness, three aspherical elements corrects spherical aberrations.

Air Sphere Coating (ASC)

Canon’s Air Sphere Coating (ASC) reduces backlit flaring and ghosting regardless of focal length or the angle of light. This results in minimal distractions and aberrations by maintaining high contrast and light transmission in strong lighting conditions.

Rugged and Reliable Design

For reliable performance in any conditions, the RF 24-70mm f/2.8 L lens has weather-resistant design that protects against dust and moisture. It also features a protective fluorine coating on the front and rearmost surfaces to resist fingerprints and smudges. With vibration shock resistance in the lens barrel, you can maintain settings and focus even in turbulent situations. The lens is built to endure the rigors of professional use.
